GUEST,Phil d'Conch Spanish sea shanties (59* d) RE: Spanish sea shanties 12 Jan 21


Two references on the formal end of the State shanty era in Catholic navies posted earlier in Chanteys in Royal Navy?:

"Tous les travaux de peine, toutes les manœuvres de force étaientf aites à bord — et cette habitude se conserva en France sur les navires de guerre jusque vers 1820, — au bruit d'un chant rhythmé ou d'un cri cadencé, auquel l'excitation du sifflet a fini par succéder."
[Review des Traditions Populaires, Vol.XV, 1900, pp.202-203]

“SALOMA. He a cantiga, ou gritaria*, que fazem os marinheiros , quando alão algum cabo, cujo salomear he prohibido nos nossos Navios de Guerra.”
[Campos, Mauricio Da Costa Campos, Vocabulario Marujo, (Rio De Janeiro, 1823, p.93)]

*Note: Gritaria - Same Latin root as the so-called Afro-calypsonian griot.
